Description

Do I need to study Macroeconomics?

Yes, you do!

Macroeconomics explores the scope and behavior of the economy as a whole. If you can’t wait to learn how countries "generate" national output, why unemployment prevents economic growth, and how to measure inflation, we have good news - this course is tailored just for you!

The main benefit of the course is that it helps you understand the causes and effects of nations’ economic decisions. After completing it, you’ll become a well-versed and knowledgeable participant in the current globalized markets.

And this is essential if you are:

Finance Manager

Sales Manager

Investor

In fact, the course facilitates individuals who just want to cushion themselves from the upcoming economic uncertainty. Knowledge is the most powerful weapon for all, especially in times of crisis!

We will tackle four main areas of Macroeconomics with practical examples and challenges aiming to reinforce what you have learned. The course is beautifully animated, easy to follow and interactive. Our goal is to deliver the ultimate training experience for you! Here they are:

1. Aggregate Output & Economic Growth

What is GDP? Applying Expenditure and Income approaches to measure GDP. Aggregate demand and supply. Macroeconomic Equilibrium. Sources, measurement, and sustainability of economic growth. The Solow's production function.

2. Business Cycles

Business cycle phases and their relationship with factors of production, the housing market, and the external trade sector. Types and measures of unemployment. Definitions of inflation, hyperinflation, disinflation, and deflation. Cost-push and demand-pull inflation. Major economic indicators.

3. Monetary and Fiscal Policy

Functions of Money. Definitions of Money. The money creation process. The Quantity Theory of Money. The Fisher Effect. The monetary transmission mechanism. Roles and objectives of monetary/fiscal policy. Limitations of monetary/fiscal policy. Costs of expected and unexpected inflation. Effective tax policy. Qualities of effective central banks. The interaction between monetary and fiscal policy.

4. International Trade and Capital Flows

Gross Domestic Product vs. Gross National Product. Absolute advantage vs. Comparative Advantage. Ricardian and Hecksher-Ohlin models of trade. Types of trade and capital restrictions and their economic implications. The Balance of Payments. Functions and objectives of major international organizations that facilitate trade.
